Prasad for Women: Talks for Fifth World Women
WELCOME FIFTH WORLD WOMEN. It is good to find you here. This is our time, our great joy, our canvas, our challenge, our sacred work, and our sacred trust. We are born for these times. What we each are, the world needs, every last woman of us. Every good impulse we have, every calling, instinct, stirring, essence, skill, ability, intuition, guidance, and dose of common sense, from the biggest big to the smallest small … all of this adds to the wealth and well-being of this world.
We are a holy food for these times, the prasad of these times … you and I, exactly as we are, right now. Each of us is an activated blessing for this earth and this life. We make the Divine visible in the world through recognizing and remembering our essential natures.

Blessed be. Blessed bees. Blessed Women.
Debra Roberts has lived and breathed the arts and spirituality all her life. Her work as an artist and educator has taken her to England (where she lived for eleven years), Northern Ireland, Europe, Turkey, and various cities around the United States. In New Mexico, she worked with Coyote Gathers His People, a Native American performing troupe, and was Director of the New Mexico Literacy Theater, a company that toured pueblos, schools, prisons and rehabilitation centers around the Southwest, promoting the value of literacy in people’s lives.
These and many other experiences of the arts in service to multicultural communities deeply impacted her, as does her friendship with elders from many traditions. A meeting with Hopi elder Thomas Banyacya, a messenger of Hopi prophecy who spoke about the vital importance of women stepping forward into the world, also profoundly touched her.
